I will use common sense and good judgement to do my best to do what is right for the City of Crowley and its citizens. I will listen to all Crowley citizens and address their concerns and treat them with respect as I would want to be treated.
I will try to keep taxes as low as possible while providing the same or better services our citizens have come to expect. This can be achieved by Economic Growth and Development. I will support current local businesses and work to encourage new businesses to locate here for our economic growth and development. I will work toward the revitalization of downtown Crowley.
I will work to see that our police and fire department have the manpower and equipment to keep our citizens safe. I will work to see that the City of Crowley has safe streets and clean safe water to drink.
Together we can make Crowley a better, safer place to live.
